Ez 34:11-12, 15-17 Ps 23:1-3, 5-6
1 Cor 15:20-26, 28 Mt 25:31-46
The Lord Jesus is our shepherd (Ps). At the end, at his
coming, he will hand over the kingdom to his Father
(2). He will “judge between one sheep and another,
between rams and goats” (1), between those who have
lived their lives for others, and those who have lived
for themselves (3).
For Reflection: How responsive are you to the hungry,
the thirsty, the naked, the alien, those in prison?
Parroquia del Sagrado Corazón
Trigésimo Tercer Domingo del Tiempo Ordinario
Noviembre 16, 2014
Misión de la Parroquia del Sagrado Corazón
Nosotros, El pueblo de Dios en la parroquia del Sagrado Corazón, estamos intentando constantemente hacernos
una comunidad de fe, que creyendo en Jesús, proclamamos el Reino de Dios y compartimos el misterio de la fe
adorando al Padre, permitiendo a todos los miembros un crecimiento en su relación interpersonal a través del
Hijo y siendo testigo de nuestros dones a través del servicio activo a otros en el Espíritu.
Mensaje del Padre Hilario
LA UNIDAD ENTRE LOS FELIGRESES
Ustedes pueden trabajar por la unidad cuando tratan de
entablar amistad con otras familias católicas. En
algunas parroquias existen las comunidades
parroquiales que "crean mayor interrelación personal,
aceptación de la palabra de Dios, revisión de la vida y
reflexión sobre la realidad a la luz del evangelio; se
acentúan, el compromiso con la familia, con el barrio,
y con la comunidad local"(Puebla, 447). El Reino de
Dios se inicia en las familias y en las comunidades. Es
en estas donde nacen y se fomentan los líderes del
futuro.
En el área metropolitana, unos 500 grupos fueron
organizados. Al poner su atención a la fe y al evangelio
estos católicos se dieron cuenta de lo que la fe que
comparten significaba para ellos. El organizador de
estos grupos fue el Arzobispo de Cracovia, el cardinal
Wojtila, quien más tarde se convirtió en el papa Juan
Pablo II
Un último ejemplo de cómo podemos esforzarnos por
conseguir las unidades promedio del examen de la vida
parroquial. Esto lo pueden hacer cuando se reúnen en
familia para meditar las Sagradas Escrituras,
especialmente cuando se usan las Epístolas de Pablo.
Las Parroquias de hoy son muy parecidas a las
comunidades cristianas a las cuales Pablo dirigió. Su
primera carta a los Corintios, por ejemplo, la pudo ver
escrito a muchas parroquias de hoy. Su carta a los
Gálatas llama a la fe y a la unidad. Su carta a los
Filipenses es lo que toda parroquia necesita porque
menciona la alegría y la solidaridad. Descubran las
normas que Pablo expone para la unidad de la vida de
su parroquia.
Hay otros muchos grupos en las parroquias que se
preocupan por la evangelización de las familias como
son el Movimiento familiar Cristiano y Encuentro
Matrimoniales. Ambos movimientos han ayudado a
mejorar la vida de muchas familias. Si su familia puede
participar en las actividades de estos grupos
encontraran un gran apoyo para las tareas más difíciles
de la vida familiar.
Además de estos grupos especializados, hay otros
grupos que también evangelizan a las familias. Los
grupos carismáticos, los cursillos de cristiandad y los
movimientos catecúmenas.

Christian Formation and Evangelization
DO YOU KNOW why we celebrate the feast of Christ
the King? This solemnity was established by Pope
Pius XI in 1925. It celebrates an aspect of Jesus’
identity rather than an event in his life and is thus
classed among the “idea feasts” (another example
would be Holy Family Sunday).
Originally celebrated in October, it was moved to the
last Sunday in Ordinary Time in the 1960s. It
celebrates Christ’s reign over all things.
By instituting this feast, Pius XI hoped to renew the
faith of the people which had suffered from the
secularism and atheism of his day. Next Sunday (the
feast of Christ the King) marks the end of Ordinary
Time and the Church Year. On November 29/30 we
begin a new liturgical year with the First Sunday of
Advent.
The Church Year, our Liturgical Year, ends next
Sunday. Ordinary Time (that part of the liturgical year
when no particular moment or aspect of the Christian
mystery is celebrated) concludes with the feast of
Christ the King.
As the Church year comes to its end, our thoughts turn
to the end of all time. The faithful Christian reflects
not with fear but with confident hope that Christ will
come again as the supreme ruler over all.

Sacred Heart School
To Our Fellow Parishioners!
In the week of November 3rd, we had our third school
Mass of the year. One of our students who had been
recently baptized chose to receive her first Communion
Mass. Her faith and joy in the Sacrament truly inspired
me, and she shared a tremendous gift with our entire
school by allowing us to witness her first time
receiving Jesus in Holy Communion. What a blessing!
Reflecting on these Masses, I am also struck by part of
scripture, Matthew 19:30, when Christ says, “but many
who are first will be last, and the last will be first.” Our
three Masses have been celebrated by both Monsignor
Aiken and Father Hamilton. You would be so inspired
to see them at these times. Both of these spiritual
fathers for our community come to the Mass with a
particular joy, and their homilies take place out in the
pews, among our children. They have shown such
exuberance to be with our children that I am inspired
and humbled. It’s amazing to see our young people
respond to them, and so many have bravely answered
questions about the Gospel and participated in the
homily. These are powerful moments, beautiful
moments.
Expanding on this, the more I have learned about the
jobs of all of our religious, I am stunned by the sheer
volume of their workload. Sister Jude helped organize
these Masses, Sister Cecilia prepares our children for
First Communion, and Sister Karen has been an
integral part by assisting our second graders. Deacon
Carlos has visited our classes to pray with them most
Mondays. Each of our religious, including those I have
not named, have worked many days with hours along
the lines of 7:00 AM to 10:00 PM. Their work ethic is
incredible, and they truly help me to encounter Christ
in our world, as I know they do for all of us.
Perhaps it is in the nature of those who most
authentically follow Christ to be the last in terms of
them receiving thanks and praise. This week, let’s
change that and deliberately thank these holy men and
women in our community for all they have given to us,
for all they do to show us God’s abundant love. Please
join with me in this amazing opportunity.
May God’s grace be tangibly with your family this
week! God bless you,
